Some time ago I worked in Dinan and lunched here every day- it was 50metres from the office. On this basis-dozens of meals- I can confirm a consistently competent restaurant. Calling in last August, I found everything I expected. Well thought out and presented French cuisine in a nice room, served by charming and competent staff. Various mens and a... More

After eating at Le Cantorbery earlier in the week, we thought that we had already had the best the Dinan has to offer. We were wrong. La Courtine is as good. You cant compare the 2 as they are different. Cantorbery is very traditional, almost old fashioned. mature staff, lots of attention to detail etc. La Courtine is traditional French... More

Delightful little restaurant. Food was absolutely cooked to perfection. The flavours were delicious, the pear and caramel for dessert was outstanding. Probably one of the best meals I've had. Highly recommended. A*

Visited La Courtine on the evening of Thursday October 13th. Didn't book but we were lucky and it was quiet - quickly filled up though. Very welcoming, lovely food, great ambience (partly due to its coziness), and sensibly priced. Wish we'd found it earlier in the week. Can't fault it.

Wow. It is not often that I am blown away by a restaurant, but we have just had one of the best meals we have ever had in France. I had read the reviews beforehand and was keen to visit this little treasure and am delighted that we did. If I could award this restaurant more than a 5 then... More

We has lunch here today after reading good reviews on Trip Advisor. The food and service were excellent and very well priced for the quality. Eu 26 for 3 very good courses. Wine by bottle or pitcher also fairly priced. It was so nice to dine somewhere that tried harder than the many tourist focused restaurants we have eaten in... More

You would never know it given the fact that this restaurant is off a street that is off the main tourist square at the opening of Dinan, but this is a high-quality and reasonably (affordable) restaurant. The fish melted in my mouth and the quiche started was the best I've had (Quiche Lorraine with real bacon strips). The service was... More

This is a little gem,filled with French locals so a good recommendation in itself. Food was excellent with delicious amuse Bouche and service good,despite being busy and only 1 person front of house. So much better than the tourist restsurants that abound.

My wife and I took the 26€ "menu" for starters, main and dessert each. 1. Terrine de boeuf / tartine de chevre starters - cheese starter particularly delicious with a cabbage/mushroom style side dish prepared to perfection. 2. Porc araignee / fish brochettes mains - again delicious and especially the fish chunks as well as grilled veg. Both served with... More
